In addition, it is a model with rolling on the ground, provided with two wheels of 13 x 6.00, so your effort is reduced only to directing and pushing the car.

In terms of comfort, we can tell you that the device has a V-handlebar, ergonomic design and controls included on the handles, so you can act quickly when needed.
Although it is a professional mower, the tank has a standard capacity of 1 liter, which means that if you plan to work the entire field in one day, you will need to refill it at least once.

You receive goggles with the product, but we recommend that you also buy a pair of earphones, because the brushcutter can become quite noisy.
Most gasoline mowers weigh between 5 and 7 kilograms, a weight big enough to get tired if you hold it longer with your arms and you don’t have a suitable harness at hand. This is the reason why we recommend this model of harness for the mower, distributed by the Little Farmer, with a universal structure, which is suitable for any type of tool of this type.

The PM8699 from Terra Motors is specially designed to be compatible with Husqvarna products, namely the 323, 325, 326, 327, 123 and 223 series mowers, so we recommend it if you have a device from this list. As with other internal components, to ensure that the device works well after installation, we advise you to call a professional to install it instead of the old carburetor.
Thanks to the automatic gardening tools you can use nowadays, you no longer have to deal with digging the ground or cutting grass and weeds by hand. A mower, at a good price, can help you, for example, to maintain the lawn or garden without problems, as long as you choose a suitable model in terms of power, autonomy and endurance.
If you are one of those who love to work in the garden and are passionate about the tools dedicated to this purpose, we offer you a small guide to buying the right mower, which will help you keep all the vegetation at the ideal height, with minimal effort.
Design : Although not exactly the most important criterion, the format of the brushcutter can help you easily identify the right models for the type of use you have in mind. For example, for a garden with an area of up to 200sqm and finishing works next to alleys and trees, a loop handle version is sufficient. This design offers high accuracy, but is less comfortable if used for long periods of time.
For spaces over 200sqm, up to 800–1000sqm, you need a handlebar handle, designed for handling with both hands. These options are most often provided with a support harness, with or without a lumbar strap, which ensures a correct posture and comfort when working for several hours.
If the land you work on exceeds 1000sqm, it is good to consider a brushcutter at a good price, in the category of table options. These are ground-running devices with two or four wheels, easier to use on large surfaces.
Power supply : You cannot choose the best mower for your garden correctly without taking into account the type of power supply. From this point of view, you can use an electric version, with a battery, which ensures autonomy of 1–2 hours, during which time you can move as far away as you want from any source of electricity. However, these types of mowers are more expensive, and limit your working time due to the need to recharge.
Also from the category of electric mowers you can choose a wired version. These models are more affordable, you can work as long as you want, but you need to stay within range of the power cord and choose the extension cord carefully, if you come to the conclusion that you need one.
As a level of popularity, the models with thermal engine, on gasoline, gain detachment. The price is reasonable, and in terms of power it offers you more than the category of electric alternatives, intended rather for the maintenance of lawns and small gardens.
They are the best brushcutters in terms of autonomy, offering unlimited working time, as long as you have a reserve of fuel with you and let the engine cool down a little from time to time. But they are heavier than the electric ones, so you will get tired more easily, make more noise and need careful and frequent maintenance (cleaning the filter, spark plugs, etc.).
Power : The power of the motor directly influences the working efficiency on large surfaces. If you maintain a garden of up to 200sqm, you will easily manage with a brushcutter, cheap and good, of 1–1.5HP or 735–1100W. For surfaces from 200 to 500sqm we recommend models from 2 to 3HP or 1500–2200W, and if your land exceeds 500sqm it is good to look for stronger variants.
With wire, knives or disc : Regarding the cutting head, you have to choose between the sectioning with nylon thread, the one with knife with 2 or 3 blades or with disc with several small teeth, the main brushcutter accessories that you have to you must have them at hand.
The nylon thread works very well on the lawn, and in general the tall and tender grass, being also indicated for everything that means finishes (alleys, spaces around trees or shrubs, etc.). If it breaks, it is replaced easily and quickly, which is why it is preferred for surfaces with many obstacles (grass stones, etc.).
For areas with thick grass, small bushes, weeds, we recommend you to look for a suitable model among the versions of mowers, at good prices, with a knife-type cutting head, with 2 to 4 teeth or large blades. The harder vegetation, with resistant weeds and shrubs, is most effectively approached with a serrated disc, which is provided with many small teeth. But it is good to remember that to use it it is good to remove hard objects from the mowed area (stones, pieces of iron or even wood, etc.), because it is sensitive to blows. In addition, it will not help you much in the case of fine work.
Numerous opinions about the best mowers recommend the versions that allow the interchange of the cutting heads. In this way you can easily adapt to the terrain and the maintenance stage, without compromising on efficiency or detail.
Accessories : If you use the device on large surfaces or frequently, make sure that it is accompanied by a comfortable support system (strap, harness with or without lumbar support). Equally important is the protector for the cutting head, which can be single or double, in the case of versions that allow interchange. Never work without this accessory.
Some suppliers add in the delivery package suitable protective equipment (glasses, visor, earphones), consumables (oil or oil mixture with gasoline). Remember that battery versions must be accompanied by at least one suitable battery, because otherwise they will involve significant additional costs.
Where can I find parts for the brushcutter?
You will most easily find parts for your mower in online or traditional stores where you even bought the device for cutting vegetation in the garden. It is important to make sure that the parts are compatible with your brushcutter model and to turn to a professional to install them.
How much oil is mixed in the brush?
If you want to know how much oil is put in gasoline on the brushcutter, we will tell you that in general, the ratio of 1:50 is used, but there are models that also use 1:30 or 1:25, so consult carefully the technical manual of the device which you bought, to make sure you use the correct formula.
How to put the wire on the brushcutter?
To install the wire to the brushcutter, you must first remove the drum cover by pressing the two clips that secure it. Then pull the nylon thread outwards, through the hole created especially for this in the drum wall, fix the spool on the spring support and put the lid back on. You’re ready to work.
Why does the spark plug get wet on the brushcutter?
The spark plug on the brushcutter gets wet either because the ignition does not spark properly, or if the nozzles do not work properly and send more fuel than can be burned under normal operating conditions.
How to start a brushcutter
Have you bought a Little Farmer, Stihl, Husqvarna mower or from another brand and are you preparing to use it? If you are not familiar with this type of product and you are looking for some simple instructions to tell you how to start a brushcutter correctly, we offer you all the necessary information in the lines below.
Prepare the brush
First make sure that you have put enough fuel in the tank, using the formula indicated in the technical manual of the product. It is equally important to check if the oil tank is full and if not, to supplement with the required amount.
Take a look at the cutting head to see if it is securely fastened and is accompanied by the protection included in the list of essential accessories of the mower.
Do not neglect the safety equipment and take care to have goggles and earphones at hand, and your clothes should not be too wide, so as not to risk being caught by the cutter or knife.
Blocks acceleration and switches the ignition to the Start position. Initiate the carburetor and close the shock valve. It starts the starter, partially at the beginning, pulling the wire only 10–15cm, then pulls firmly on the rope, along its entire length, until the engine starts to run and maintains a uniform speed.
Now that the engine is running you can close the shock valve and accelerate a few times. From this moment you are ready to work. When you want to stop the brushcutter to pause, reload the tank or because you have finished cutting the vegetation, turn the ignition to the STOP position.
Hot starting is done after a short break, resting for you, or refueling for the device, when the engine is still warm because it has not been stopped for a long time. In this case, after blocking the acceleration and switching the ignition to Start, the shock damper does not close, and the starter is pulled from its beginning along its entire length, until the engine starts.
